CANCER: Stage 4

 

In this artwork, artist Eriberto Oriol captured the intense emotions that I was going through at the time when I found out that I had breast cancer. Nothing prepares one for moments like these.

This was back in August 1994. I kept asking myself questions like, “What did I do to get this cancer? What do I do now? Why me?”

I remembered a therapist saying to me, “Angelica get a hold of yourself, the fear of cancer will kill you sooner than cancer.” I said to myself, “That is easy for her to say.” But she was right.

They say that some of the most powerful works of art emerge from an artist’s darkest moments. In this piece, you can see the strength in Eriberto’s art.

He was able to capture the intensity of emotions and sheer determination to live in those eyes – all my emotions are on and running!

In much of Eriberto’s work, it is in his characters that seem to reflect haunting moments of human life that resonate the fears and emotions most experience.

His work also shows the strength, tenacity, and integrity of his character as a human being and as an artist.

Conversation on California Environmental whackos

What? No paper bags either??

Comment to a Mango’s Azul posting:  What? No Plastic Bags ???

A comment was made …..

“ah yes… California Environmental whackos, no more plastic bags , ha ha ,ha Supermarkets in california have banned plastic bags especially in San Francisco, forcing people to BUY paper bags at 10 cents each. . Just cut more trees down.. bravo whackos from the land of fruits and nuts. A California Artist, landscape painting included in book Planet Earth, Planet Art, by Mirca, UK. Associated with 2,000,000 members Earth First environmental group international”

Our first reaction to above:  You called us what?? Just because we care about the  environment ?? Is it preferable for people to have their heads in the ground and just continue to say it is not happening? There is nothing we can do…

When we first got this comment, it was sad.  Afters,  we thought lets put it out there and show the mindset some people have.
